An area where we truly excel is locating water leaks. It is common for cars to get water in places like the boot and in the footwells. We find the source of the problem, fix it, and also perform decontamination if necessary.

Locating water inside a car is not usually difficult. Finding out where it originally came from is a different matter however. To help, we are going to look at some of the potential causes of the leakages.

Door membrane

The door membrane may be responsible. Usually, this is behind the door panel. It is typically a sheet of either thin foam or polythene. Water is capable of entering the door's body when it rains. Normally, it drains out of holes at the bottom of the door. If the membranes become torn or ruptured, water is able to run down behind them. It then soaks into the door panel and can end up in the footwell.

Door seal

The door seal could also be an issue. The rubber seals around the door's edge can allow leaks at times. It is possible for the seals to crack, split or perish. In these cases, water can get into your car. You can use a visual inspection to determine whether a seal is at fault.

Air conditioning

You should keep an eye on the air conditioning too. You might spot a pool of water beneath your car after turning the system on. This is nothing to worry about. However, in some instances, the drain tube can end up getting blocked. The water will then make its way behind your dashboard and onto the front carpets.

At New Again, we use a wide variety of methods to locate car leaks. The majority of cars will have a single leak. Yet, it is possible for several to occur at once. In either case, it is important to find the source and fix it before the water damages your interior.
